of the obama campaign on last night's performance and the way forward. sam stein, e.j. dionne on romney's style versus the president's substance. >> i like pbs. i love big bird. >> david k. johnston on romney's huge tax lie. james hoff of the teamsters on romney's 108 on his feelings for the american middle class. and ohio state senator nina turner on what last night's debate means for the buckeye state. good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. if it were just only a game, right? the presidential debate last night was ugly. it was an ugly night because the truth left the building. it took a beating. give mitt romney credit, though. he was an all-american liar last night. and the president seemed to leave his best material, his best game at home. for millions of americans, it was extremely hard to watch mitt romney lie the way he did and get away with it. >> first of all, i don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. i don't have a tax cut of the scale that you're talking about. my view is we ought to provide tax relief to people in the middle class. >> the l
night because the truth left the building. it took a beating. give mitt romney credit, though. he was an all-american liar last night. and the president seemed to leave his best material, his best game at home. for millions of americans, it was extremely hard to watch mitt romney lie the way he did and get away with it. >> first of all, i don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. i don't have a tax cut of the scale that you're talking about. my view is we ought to provide tax relief to people in the middle class. >> the lie is so outrageous, it's breathtaking. mitt romney has campaigned across this country promoting a 20% reduction in the tax rate. his plan would give the richest 1% of americans an additional $6 o,000 tax cut. for those at the very top, the 0.1%ers, they would get a $264,000 tax cut. the cost? well, it's $456 billion per year. how do you like that? romney can eliminate every deduction from the tax code and he still will not be able to cover the cost of these tax cuts. but romney didn't need to address any of these specifics. he just needed to lie about it. it's a strategy
about how incredibly well mitt romney is going to do. >> on wednesday night, mitt romney is going to be standing on the same stage as the president of the united states and i'm telling you come thursday morning, the entire narrative of the race is going to change. here's the great news for republicans. we have a candidate who is going to contrast what his view and what the president's record is. and this whole race will be turned upside down come thursday morning. over the course of every time he was backed into a corner in the primaries, he came out with a great debate performance because that's where he shines. >> i find this just amazing. i think chris christie needs to go back and go to surrogate school for a moment. the governor of new jersey, the idea of a surrogate is not to dampen expectations so it's going to be easier for the candidate to exceed them? apparently not. chris christie is right about one thing though. mitt romney must accomplish a lot on wednesday night to begin to alter this race across the board. romney's team is loading him up with a bunch of zingers for
't work so romney moved on to "we did build that." republicans spent a night at their own convention talking about the new strategy, but that didn't work either. so recently they went with "are you better off." but now they are abandoning it for national security message. they are all over the map, folks. paul ryan says the campaign has made some missteps, but it looks like the campaign just steps all over itself. if you use his campaign as an example, mitt romney isn't providing at all as a leader. here's the bottom line. they have never been on message. you can go all the way back to the republican primary debates. president obama never had the heat put on him because the republicans didn't have their act together with all their fighting and message to america. president obama and the campaign has won the summer. never behind in the polls, had a better convention, no question about it. and in the post convention, it's only gotten worse. now we're down to the debates in denver on wednesday night. the first one is on domestic policy. there are some republicans who are putting their c
to take its toll on the campaign? >> yes. in many ways, what mitt romney's challenge is on wednesday night is to stop the bleeding within his own party and within his own camp. absolutely. behind the scenes, republicans are very worried. some are saying so publically. if mitt romney doesn't reassure them within the first half hour of the debate, they are goners. now you're seeing already, a lot of the independent super pacs who are blessed with their own money are going elsewhere. they are desperately trying to keep a low margin in the senate. the democrats still hold it. republicans have faint hopes of taking it. they are looking at house races, at governor races, state legislatures, they are looking at anyplace to protect themselves from what, at this minute, looks like a fairly comfortable win for president obama. that could change. it could still change. i have to stress. but there's nothing in the romney strategy so far that indicates they know how to turn it around. >> all right. howard fineman, thanks for your time tonight. good to have you here in denver. remember to answer tonight
out for tomorrow night to be on guard against. the romney campaign shows time and time again that they are willing to flat out lie whenever it just suits the evening, when it suits them just fine, they will throw it out there and hope it sticks to the wall. most of the keystones to romney's campaign are based on lies and distortions. let's go through them all. romney says president obama stole billions from medicare. the president cut wasteful spending. romney's camp created an entire ad campaign about president obama revoking the work requirement from welfare. the ads were totally debunked but romney kept airing them any way and stands by them today. good debate talk tomorrow night. mitt romney says he's going to repeal obama care and replace it with something to keep people from being uninsured. but an analysis from the commonwealth fund shows mitt romney would leave 72 million more people uninsured, 12 million higher than before obama care. recently mitt romney said his campaign never ran any intentionally false advertising. we have been ab chutely spot-on, he said. any ti

night? here is romney's answer. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case i said something that is just completely wrong. and i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100%. >> president obama didn't bring up the 47% remarks in the debate and caught a lot of flack for it. i question it here on this network to one of his advisers. but he probably wanted to avoid giving romney the chance to address it in front of 67 million people, that kind of platform. the romney camp wasn't satisfied. they were probably expecting it to give their candidate an opportunity. okay. so they're not happy with the good debate performance and wanted a bite at the 47% apple to straighten things out. they sent romney over to fox news so romney can finally say he was wrong on a different platform of course. romney sure took his sweet time. he didn't say he was wrong two and a half weeks ago. >> well, you know, it's not elegantly stated. l

're going to see in mitt romney? he's touched other opponents. he's challenged them to a $10,000 bet. he's lost his cool, he's shouted them down. is what what's he's going to do on wednesday night? >> no, i don't think he's going to do that. the way he can win the debate is if he prepares very vigorously. i think z president ron portman, he's got to get that script, memorize it and hold to it. if he does that, i think there's some chance that the press wants to say he's done well, he conceivably could wayne the debate. he also benefits from going in there with very low expectations. >> are the expectations too high on the president? >> of course the expectations are too high for the president. five of the last six ibt presidents who faced challengers in first debates have lost. history says that can easily happen. only two challengers then went on to win the election. secondly, the president has not debated in four years. i assume he's preparing, but not as much as romney because he has some other things he has to do. so his ek peksations a-- expect way too high. >> romney is polling wor
